I had it from Del Haize (super market) Brussels. Classic Belgian Ale taste. Trappist from France but without Trappist label :-) For me similar to Chimays!

A gusher. Massive carbonation creates a huge ivory aerated head on top of a cloudy amber beer. Not a huge amount in the nose, but a little sweetness and maltiness. The taste has some more to it - honey, dried fruits, malts, toast, a little booze. Good balance between sweet, bitter and dry. Medium bodied with a pepperiness on the tongue. Not bad but not a standout trappist.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is muted, nut, Belgian yeast, bread, slight fruitiness from the yeast, slight sugar.
Taste is sweet, candy sugar, leading to yeast, plums, bubble gum, banana, caramel, licorice, and herbs in the finish. Mouthfeel is fine.
Itís too sweet, but still itís better than expected even if the nose is dull.
